Remember this Thanksgiving, the point is to give thanks, not stuff your face with food and watch football.  But you can't just thank the air, or nothing at all.  Thanks are directed at someone, not stated without context or subject.  Who are you thanking?
And for American Jews, this year they have an extra reason to give thanks: Hanukkah starts on the same day as Thanksgiving (happens extremely rarely).  Seems to me, they don't have a lot else to be thankful for lately it seems to me with an administration hostile to Israel and antisemitism on the rise.
And for a final pre-Thanksgiving thought: try putting your stuffing into the waffle iron and baking it there after its done.  That way everyone gets crispy parts and you can pour gravy over it instead of syrup.
The waffles turned out great, and people thought they were interesting.  The biggest problem is that they take about 5-10 minutes to cook, so they'll be a longer wait than normal waffles.  Also; it seems like you get less this way than just with ordinary stuffing, probably psychological.
